HostelSnap testimonials

We are just getting started but our unique software is already getting praise from hostel staff and managers who have tried it out.

HostelSnap has made managing our small hostel much easier. As one of the initial beta testers, I was given the opportunity to guide the development of the software. It was wonderful to have my input so well received, and watch new features I requested built and implemented week after week. They are also really intuitive, which is great for a hostel that is frequently training new staff. When more assistance is needed, the help pages and videos are a great asset. This really is software built by and for hostel owners, and I look forward to the continuous growth.

Successful hostels understand that a focus on community is just as important as occupancy for creating greater profit in the long run. We created HostelSnap because we felt traditional Hotel-style PMS systems were overly complex, difficult to train staff on, and didn’t help us focus on the social travel community we want at our small San Francisco hostel. In addition, we wanted software that would be continually developed through open collaboration and help small independent hostels with the data they need.
